»How to relate?« is not at all a secondary question to the practice of contemporary dance – as if there were movement first that could then relate to something or not. Rather – mediated through bodies, affect, sensing, imagination, rules, etc. – this question might even form the core of the artistic process through which dance emerges. Posing the same set of questions to Berlin-based dance makers Alice Chauchat, Jeremy Wade, Jared Gradinger and Angela Schubot, the text aims to disclose and unfold relational practices in the contemporary field through conversations about the respective relata and the modes of relating that organize their artistic process.
